Abstract

Reactions 1704, p350 - 2 Jun 2018 Drug poisoning and death: case report In a retrospective forensic analysis of 54 patients, a patient [age and sex not stated] died following suxamethonium chloride poisoning [dosage, indication and time to reaction onset not stated]. The patient received an injection of suxamethonium chloride, which led to poisoning. The patient eventually died. A cadaver inspection revealed general changes similar to the changes seen in sudden death. The characteristic features included livor mortis noted as dark purplish red discolouration, unapparent rigor mortis and facial bruising. A forensic toxicology testing revealed suxamethonium chloride in the patient’s cardiac blood. The duration of survival following sustenance of the injury was > 10 minutes. Author comment: [T]he duration of survival after sustaining injury was. . .> 10 min in 1 case. The study found that deaths caused by suxamethonium chloride poisoning occur within 10 minutes, the consequences are grave when prompt discovery and rescue are cannot be provided; this is associated with the pharmaceutical properties of Zhao YF, et al. [Forensic Analysis for 54 cases of Suxamethonium Chloride Poisoning]. [Chinese]. Fayixue Zazhi 33: 374-375, No. 4, Aug 2017.
